I'd edit the title to add the date, it'll help a lot so people don't miss the thread entirely.

Can't wait. The leakers all said it'd be juicy, and juicy Nintendo Directs are entertainment on their own.

I just want to see that freaking Mario Rabbids RPG thing that keeps getting rumored. It sounds so... weird that I'm slightly intrigued by it.

Im waiting on a whole bunch of stuff to revealed. But more specifically...

Splatwoon
The new Mario game that will probably be in some sort of bundle pack
The switch version of NintendoLand. I know it hasnt even been rumored but I feel like the Switch is just like the Wii U in the sense that basically any bundle will come with that one game. Probably Switchland unless that title's already taken
Breath of the Wild
Id really want a third Mario Galaxy but at this point Im just making a list of things I want and not expect to be revealed.

This just reminded me, do we have an official Switch topic? Why dont we?

What I'm expecting:
-That Mario platformer shown off in the trailer.
-Elder Scrolls being officially confirmed.
-The rumored Mario/Rabbids crossover game.
-Splatoon 2 or port, still not sure which it is.
-Mario Kart 8 port.
-Maybe BotW, but they've already shown off that game plenty even before they announced the Switch, so maybe not.
-Something related to Pikmin.
-Yooka-Laylee.

What I'm hoping for:
-Smash Bros. port.
-Some strong third-party titles.
-The rumored Pokemon Stars (though they may save that for E3).

If the Stars rumor is real I hope they got a better name. As people have been saying, the games should've just been named after the Ultra stuff, because there's nothing on the aesthetic involving suns and moons in the entire game. Lunatone and Solrock aren't even on Alola, though I guess Minior and the copious amounts of Starmie count as stars

I'm not hoping for anything much specific. Just show me lots of good stuff. I can't really request for much since I'm not even buying it for now.

But I would say I want clarification about that 3D Mario, that Mario Kart, that Splatoon, and Project Sonic 2017.

Maybe it'll be like Black 2 or White 2 and they'll have some extra Pokemon in the PokeDex?

Liam Robertson claims 3D Mario is a launch title and we're getting a Metroid announcement

I personally don't believe that leaked launch lineup that said the console would come with Splatoon, it didn't make sense to me and I haven't heard of Liam (only source I trust) backing it up

I'll think about getting this console for my birthday as long as Zelda's also out before then (and hopefully MK8+, which supposedly has 24 new tracks).

Laura didn't hear anything on Metroid though, and she's currently the most trustworthy Switch leaker(though, as she said, her sources could be the ones that are wrong, so even that take with a grain of salt). However, she did specify 'didn't hear anything' and not 'not happening', so it could be a bigger surprise they're keeping under wraps.

Wasn't she the one saying BoTW wasn't coming out at launch until she "asked an NoA source" a couple of days ago, though? It might've been Emily Rogers saying that, but personally, I don't believe any leakers claiming that. Of course, there's also speculation going around that BoTW will be a launch title in America but take longer to arrive in Europe for localisation, but I think that would hurt European Switch sales too much for Nintendo to actually do it.

Me too. I'd rather get a proper Sun/Moon sequel that's built for the Switch from the ground up (which would probably need around the same development time as SuMo) than a rerelease that may have some graphical tweaks and/or extra content like the 3rd version games of yesteryear. <.<

I know Gen VII is quite good visually compared to Gen VI and all, but the Switch has been shown to be capable of far better, so a PokéSwitch using the same graphics engine as SuMo would honestly be very disappointing. And when you factor in that GameFreak has very little experience with console development versus handhelds, I'd rather wait a few years and be pleasantly surprised... just like we were with SuMo.

Is there anything suggesting they would just use the same graphics as Sun and Moon? I mean, given Breath of the Wild, I think they'd basically have to give Alola a huge graphical upgrade if they do this.

^ They could have made the assets at a higher scale and downscaled them to fit on the 3DS. I doubt it, since it's not the same kind of thing where they'll be useful for many generations, but they did that with the Pokemon models iirc.

I just don't want Stars to happen because it'll be a huge middle finger to the 3DS consumers.
No pun intended, but I'd rather them not switch consoles in the middle of a generation.

Gen VIII can be on the Switch, sure, but I personally think it's way too early to jump ship.
(Especially since X/Y came out well after the 3DS itself did, and they've never console-hopped before)

Not only that, but the 3DS still has a large audience, unlike the Wii U, and there are plenty of rumors of plans to support the 3DS to some degree all the way up to 2019.
(It even makes sense that they would, since - as I said before - the 3DS actual has a large audience, unlike the Wii U)

Either way, I don't think Stars will even be a real thing given the above reasons.
(Not to mention that Grey, Z, and Delta Emerald were all trademarked but never happened for obvious reasons, so I see no reason why Stars would be any different)

- - -

And yes, they have been down-scaling the models for Pokémon, but they've been doing this since X/Y
(And they're only doing it so they don't have to constantly remake all of the models, essentially saving them a lot of time and effort for future installments)

That's another reason why I don't understand the whole Stars rumor, because - from what I've seen - a lot of it is based purely off of the model for Pikipek being in HD.
That has absolutely no meaning whatsoever because they've been doing that with the models for Pokémon since X/Y, as I said before.

So I really don't understand why people are treating that one small, trivial thing as evidence of Stars' existence because it quite literally proves nothing.

I feel bad for derailing the topic now. smilie

Well, regardless of what they want to do with Pokemon on the Switch or whether the Stars rumor is true or not, I actually don't think we'll hear anything about it until this year's E3. And yes, I do actually think they'll do more with E3 this year since they got a brand spanking new console to market.

Anyway, while on the subject of rumors, I heard Grant Kirkhope is supposedly doing the score for the Mario/Rabbids RPG.

So... That's cool, I guess.

There is also one other issue with PokéSwitch. Joe Merrick actually pointed it out, so all credits to him, but a Pokémon on the Switch would very likely mean a return to playing Pokémon on a single screen after we've had the main series games on dual-screen systems for 10 years (aka half the franchise's life span). I'm sure Game Freak could think of something to change the battle interface, but it would probably look very cluttered.

Ones are saying that the Mario x Rabbids RPG (or Rabbids Kingdom Battle) will be composed by Grant Kirkhope. This new Super Mario RPG won't work as well with those annoying Rabbids like with Square-Enix but the composer for this one will likely by one of the highlights if not THE highlight. It might come at September.

The rumoured Beyond Good & Evil reboot is codenamed Odyssey (Beyond Good & Evil: Odyssey?) is a Switch-exclusive for one year before a digital-only release on other consoles and PC.

Unless they announce Smash 5, Spla2n, a proper Star Fox, Metroid Prime 4, a Mother Trilogy collection, a console Fire Emblem, and F-Zero's return all to release within a year of launch, as well as a price tag of under $200, I'm not buying.

I'm serious. I have no interest in paying $250+ in a machine that will have no third party support in less than a year like the Wii U did.

I know full well I'm asking a bit much and it's to emphasize that it'll take a miracle for me to bother with this thing at launch.

Why should I pay an equal price to a PS4 for a much more limited selection of games? I'm burned by how everyone claimed the Wii U would have more third party support and it all dried up within the year because the device simply wasn't powerful enough. To what I get this still isn't that much more powerful than current gen hardware.

Well, there were more reasons as to why third parties dropped from the Wii U other than it just not being as powerful. Some just didn't want to develop around the Game Pad, some just saw the Wii U wasn't selling well anyway and didn't even bother.

I don't think the Switch will have the same issue, or at least it won't be as bad as it was with the Wii U. I know the whole portability aspect, but it doesn't seem to actually hinder the games or make them more gimmicky. Even if it's not as powerful, we already kind of know Elder Scrolls is coming for it. Plus there's also Sonic's Project 2017 game confirmed to come to the Switch (before we even knew it was called the Switch) as well as the Xb1 and PS4. So I think it'll at least be powerful enough to compete with them.

That's just my take on it though.

Pretty much both of these.

What I want in particular for the console is:
-A better online infrastructure much like Xbox Live or Playstation Network. Nintendo Network and Miiverse were steps in the right direction but they still have a ways to go.
-Cloud based accounts and storage. I'm tired of having my account and games locked to one console only. We should be able to access account stuff on any Switch just like the other consoles.
-third party support that doesn't jump ship in a year or two.
-a price lower than $300 or even $250 for that matter.
-A new F-Zero game, A proper Metroid title, a proper Animal Crossing title, a new console Kirby game(though this is more of a personal thing), a new console Fire Emblem, a new Smash title entirely(not just a port), a Splatoon sequel, a new Mario Kart and not a port of 8, and maybe even Bayonetta 3 or a Pokken sequel a few years from now.
-No "Pokemon Stars" or anything of that nature unless it's a unique game made specifically for the Switch. No one is going to want to play the next main series Pokemon game on a portable console as opposed to a complete handheld.
-Most importantly of all- listen and respect the fanbase from now on. In EVERY aspect. We're getting tired of videos getting taken off of YouTube, fan projects getting destroyed, getting gimmicky features and "innovations" that no one really wanted or asked for, never listening to fan demands, and Nintendo not taking any criticism to heart and doing their own thing without any fan input or critical input.

Nintendo really dropped the ball with the Wii U, and in some cases the 3DS, so if the Switch is going to get even a consideration from me they need to come out guns blazing and nothing less than that.

That being said I'm not getting one anytime soon regardless of what I think of it since I'm planning on getting a PS4 for my next home console.
